New episode of Royalty:

http://www.vtm.be/tv/index_programma...multimedia.htm

First part:

1. New years reception at the palace for the representatives of Nato and Shape

2. Prince Philippe paying his respects in Kuweit

3. Prince Laurent and princess Claire at the conference "Rail meets Road" at the European Motor Show

4. Princess Mathilde's sister Elisabeth is engaged to Alfonso Pallavicini. she's alot prettier in real (or on video) than on photos IMO.

5. Queen Paola and prince Joachim visit Panamarenko's retrospective. Panamarenko's wife asked the queen whether they would conduct the tour in Dutch (Paola's Dutch is very poor). She said "Yes yes, I'll try to do my best". According to the artist the queen was pleased but surprised by how many works are exposed, and probably glad when it was over. :) He also suspects one of his works will be bought by the palace.

6. The baptism of prince Christian of Denmark. His 120 years old baptism dress was made in Belgium from Belgian lace.

Second part:

1. When will prince Charles's reign begin?

2. Edwin De Roy Van Zuydewijn, ex-husband of princess Margarita of Holland plans to publish a book.

3. royal etiquette : what to wear when you're invited by the king?

Oh I don't think you have to worry much about Van Zuydewijn. The Dutch people know by now that he is just telling lies to attract attention. As in the reportage is said, in the past he has already said some silly things.

I thought the footage of the three d'Udekom d'Acoz sisters was wonderful. What beautiful women and their movements are so subtle. Can anyone get screencaps of this segment? I tried and had no success.

Thanks for the pictures Catherine!

I bet the paparazzi are jealous of King Albert's camera in this picture! Is the King an avid photographer by the way?

I have always been partial to Mathilde's fashion sense, but I detest her pants in this picture. Paisley-patterned pants aren't quite the subtle fashion statement I'm used to her making.

Catherine, thank you so much for these pictures - I have been hoping someone would post more of them. The colors of the buildings in the port are just beautiful -- so typically Italian. I wonder if they actually escaped the cold? It looks like they are quite bundled up.

Is the house that KA and AP own near Portofino? I can't recall the name of the town the house is in. Again, thank you for the photos.

I meant to say thank you for these pictures at the time they were posted, but I completely forgot.:o Thank you very much for these lovely pictures Cathérine, and thank Chris for me too.:) It's great seeing all the pictures after hearing so much about them.
I'll agree with you Alexandria about Mathilde's pants - I'm not too fond of them either.

I agree. It's a boring outfit that she's worn often...

here's more from Isopix (thanks to Jelka's help). Looks like Elio di Rupo (minister president of the Walloon region) went round to see what everybody wanted to drink
